Kevin Durant To Miss At Least 7-10 Days With Strained Hamstring

Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant suffered a strained left hamstring in the third quarter of their 125-101 win over the Wizards on Tuesday night, and the injury is more serious than previously thought. Durant underwent a MRI on Wednesday and will be out at least seven to 10 days, when he will be re-evaluated.

This is another setback for Durant, who only played in 27 games last season while undergoing two surgeries to repair a broken bone in his foot. He was cleared for full basketball activities before training camp, and there were no lingering effects from the injury.

Prior to that injury, Durant was considered to be one of the NBA's ironmen, playing in 542 of the possible 574 regular season games from 2007-2013, including Durant's MVP season in 2012-13.

Oklahoma City still won 45 games despite Durant's injury last season, but misses the playoffs. Point guard Russell Westbrook won the NBA's scoring title in his absense. 

Durant is averaging 28.1 points, 7.3 rebounds, and 3.0 assists in 34.7 minutes per game this season.
